Beauty Haulin'

I don't often do haul posts, as it's rare that I have a bunch of new make up at one time. But I realised I've accumulated a few new things that I've not shared on the blog yet - and I'm dying to get reviewing them all.

Firstly, the Make Up Revolution Fixing Spray - I bought this as soon as my student loan dropped, because I'd had a sample of an Urban Decay setting spray and decided it was definitely what had always been missing from my make up routine. While this one isn't as good as the UD one, it definitely holds my make up on a bit longer and I feel like I've nicely pulled everything together when I've spritzed my face. It smells like marzipan, though...

If you're from the North West you may have heard of Cheshire Oaks, and we've recently got a Beauty Outlet shop which sells discounted make up. They have a bunch of W7 stuff which is cheap as it is, and I needed a new primer. I won't tell you my thoughts on the Prime Magic Camera Ready Primer, because I have a whole post coming along those lines - so keep your eyes peeled! I also picked up the Twist & Shape brow thingymabob in the shade ... which I really like. It makes filling in my brows pretty effortless, and it's a pretty good colour for me too.

Another primer, this time from the absolute babes at Dermalogica - the HydraBlur Primer*, which comes with a little key thing (?!) so you always get the most out of the product. A genius idea if you ask me. Like I said, I've got a whole primer-related post coming soon so this will definitely be included once I've given it a fair trial run.

The Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation is one I've been testing out since Christmas; I had it before but in the wrong shade, and I'm so glad I picked up something that matches me better! It's definitely become my go to everyday foundation - I'll say no more.

I actually got this AEOS Enriching Spelt Hand Cream* around Christmas time too, but I wanted to mention it as I've recently started using it before bed and I love it - but boy is it expensive, so I'm savouring it. It's in such a classy little pot and it smells amazing, leaves my hands moisturised and sinks in quickly which is everything I look for in a hand cream!

Primark Beauty - or PS Love - isn't something I've tried much of. But I was in there picking up some bits for my trip to Prague and some eyelashes for my house mates, so I decided to drop a whole £1.70 and pick up a new eye shadow in a gorgeous olive green shade, and one of their lipsticks in the shade 03 Rosewood Mauve, which is very similar to my beloved Rimmel Kate Moss 19. I'm excited to try both of these out!

Have you picked up any beauty products lately? Let me know!
